Total reported discoveries have been made in the Moho-Bilondo License in the Republic of the Congo. The discoveries, Bilondo Marine 2 and 3 wells (BILDM-2, BILDM-3), were drilled to a total depth of 5,906 feet (1,800 meters) in the Tertiary series and flowed successfully. Both wells encountered a gross reservoir of 253 and 144 feet (77 and 44 meters), respectively, and they did not encounter water.
Total commented that these discoveries suggest a potential extension of phase 1, which is already producing in the southern part of the license. This first phase, brought on stream in 2008, was the first ultra-deepwater field developed in the Republic of the Congo. The field is currently producing nearly 90,000 bopd from 13 subsea wells tied into a floating production unit. The oil is exported to the onshore Djeno terminal. Total operates the license, holding a 53.5% interest; Chevron holds 31.5%; and Societe Nationale des Petroles du Congo holds 15%.
